  • In our study, the U-Pb age spectrum of detrital zircons from terrigenous sediments is used to determine the sources. The Middle and Upper Reaches of the Yangtze River drain the western Yangtze craton and eastern Tibetan plateau, and take lots of sediments to the Jianghan (江汉) plain. Detrital zircons collected from Zhoulao (周老) core provide an ideal sample for the provenance studies. Here we report LA-ICP-MS U-Pb ages of 125 detrital zircons from one sand sample in the core sediments, which is… CONTINUE READING
